  1. If my memory serves me correctly there is a very nice freeware DR400 available for FS2004 and FSX. I used to fly it in FS2004. And the best thing is - the flight dynamics were by Rob Young from Real Air Simulations! Worth a search if you don't want to splash out on the payware version just yet.. I'm going to reinstall it tonight.
  2. The DR400 is still a popular touring aircraft here in the U.K. I used to have a share in one. Lovely to fly, very forgiving with good low speed handling characteristics and four "proper" seats. The only issue as you mentioned is the fact that it's constructed of wood which means it must be kept "indoors" - an expensive option here in the UK with the very limited hanger space at most airfields. Am quite tempted by this FSX version!
  3. I tried this software but it just froze once I'd asked it to fix so I have removed it. Hope it hasn't done any permanent damage to my setup!
  4. You did say... How did you find the flight model?
  5. As suggested above... Get the JustFlight Flying Club X Warrior. Flight dynamics by Rob Young from RealAir Simulations. Need I say more? VC and 2D panel are a bit dated but the handling qualities are absolutely spot-on and make up for the lack of eye-candy. Cheers, Adam
  6. OK not done an "alpha channel" before will try and follow your web instructions! Does this channel go above the rest of the graphics or below?Text on my model is larger than other repaints. I dont see why it should be so pixalated though (see pic below).Thanks again for your helpADamhttp://forums.avsim.net/user_files/146236.jpg
  7. OK opened BMP in DXTBmp. unticked "include when saving" (mipmaps) and saved both the fuselage and wing BMPs as "Extended 32 bit 888-8" BMP files. When I open the aircraft in FS2004 can see logo + text but the aircraft reflection is OTT (and text is still quite pixilated)Any ideas?http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/146213.jpg
  8. Think this is the best place to post this pic and ask for some advice?As you can see my text appears blurred on this repaint of the Eaglesoft Citation IISP. When FS2004 loads it appears really blurred and pixalated then occasionally becomes sharper. Doesn't happen with any of the other repaints..I repainted the PSD file in Photoshop and saved as a 32bit BMP @ 1024 x 1024.Anyone help?ThanksAdamhttp://forums.avsim.net/user_files/146199.jpg
  9. I haven't tried installing the file yet! ;)Downloading from their website at 30 KB/s on my 8MB connection. HmmAdam
  10. It's ok someone from FSD has obviously seen my original message and fixed their website. Now downloading the file zzzzzzzzzz
  11. Well I tried to send the email receipt to their email but got an auto response saying they dont use it anymore. Visited website to try to contact them and get taken on a little tour round in circles asking to download my software update (which when clicked takes you to an error 404 page).Think this is the last time I'll be purchasing anything from FSD - wasted 30mins trying to sort this. I'll invoice them for MY time.Adam
  12. AM trying to reinstall my FSD Piaggio P180 on my PC but getting a "contact tech support" message. Their (FSD) email doesn't work and the download file page is missing when I visit their website to update my softwareAre FSD still trading? Anyone have a contact email for them please?ThanksAdam
  13. I would post in the forum if they would accept my registration request lol!
  14. Have done. Tried registering using the username/pass sent to me when I registered just now and it says "account deactivated" (new account!?) so back to square one:(
  15. OK thanks all done and download link received although on my 8MB connection am downloading at 20 KB/s from the PMDG site? Hmmm.EDIT: Just tried to install again and same problem:(Double click exe file. DOS window appears briefly then disappears. Nothing happens. Any ideas please.UPDATE: OK its working! I had to extract the exe file using WINRAR?!The contained exe file then worked..Adam
